The Twilosophy of fandom

Dear fans of stuff,

Today I want to discuss crazy fans. Boy do I have lots of stories! We shared a few of our favorite crazy e-mails we’ve received awhile back on LTR and since then have just been hoarding them for our own personal collection.  Every few days when we’re feeling particularly low, we open up that folder and read what the crazies have to say.  Then we pray and thank the Lord that we are not like them. (With all the praying we’ve been doing, we’re sure to get the best seats in Heaven!)

Hot girls bother them at dinner

What I want to know is how a normal person turns into a crazy person.  I don’t need to understand why a crazy person acts crazy- it’s their nature! But how do you explain when an attractive, successful driven-woman loses her cool? I’m not even talking about the mothers who leave their families to stalk the Vancouver set(s) for days on end and think it’s a “coincidence” when they keep bumping into ALL the cast members (FYI- it’s not a coincidence when you’re purposely stalking their hotels, restaurants and hang out places) or get offended when security guards take THEIR picture with their cell phones (Which, by the way, was so that they could text YOUR picture to all the other security guards so that you are put on the “she’s crazy- don’t let her near Rob- list”)

No, I’m talking about the people who seem normal in MOST areas of their lives, but it might just be one little thing.  They have great jobs, a great boyfriend or husband, maybe some cute kids and a dog, but their kids are named “Emmet Edward” and “Jacob Embry.” And what about the unicorn who is attractive and talented, yet keeps saying he was “touched real” by Twilight? Oh, and what does it mean when that normal woman whose young boys were mentioned above is pregnant and has named the little girl in her womb Bella Rose?

Seriously? What does it mean? Help me find out, after the jump Continue…

Crazies in motion

Dear Crazies-

In honor of UC’s post over at LTR honoring the crazies, I thought I’d put together a video tribute post to you all! I present some of my favorite YouTube Twilight related crazies, freak outs and general 2nd hand embarrassment.

Love you crazy freaks!

This Twi-mom takes the cake for either freakin craziest woman alive or so funny she’s come full circle and right back to crazy. Kudos!

More whack-a-doo’s after the cut!

We're 2nd hand embarrassed v3

Dear Crazy Insane Twilight Fangirl-

Get a freaking grip. You are the reason why a lot of us feel ashamed about liking this series, or have to preface any declaration of Twi-love with “but I’m normal” or “seriously, it’s a really great series” or “it’s not JUST about vampires.” You losing your shit after finishing Breaking Dawn isn’t helping the cause any.

The fact that you’re all snot faced and unintelligible for like half the video is mind blowing… did you really think your friends at school wouldn’t see this? Or people like us?! We’re sooooo 2nd hand embarrassed right now.

Please seek mental help… or a good tissue company like Kleenex

Love (i guess)
Me (themoonisdown)

If you dare…  watch her follow up video titled “Still crying two hours after Breaking Dawn” after the jump

Football is on? Sorry, gotta finish "New Moon"

Dear Twilight & Stephenie Meyer,

Sometimes, it doesn’t matter that the Philadelphia Eagles sucked 6 weeks ago, had their quarterback benched and are now only 2eagles-game wins away from winning the Superbowl.

If you think that all the attendees at the Eagle’s game-day party I went to today were giving Andy Reid and Donovan McNabb their undivided attention, you would be wrong.

Steph, you’ll be happy to know that my best friend got HER priorities straight and only looked up new-moon-readingfrom New Moon once when I came in to say hi to her and the teeny tiny baby in her belly (CONGRATS AP!)

Football- don’t mess with the Twilight Saga. Don’t even think about it.

In other news, I’m really trying to convince AP to name the baby Reneesme (since she’s only on New Moon she doesn’t know who that is yet) I KNOW, my very own best friend, only on the 2nd Twi book! I’ve kinda failed as a friend…

Anyway, Steph, thanks for distracting her from football and giving me some entertainment as I enjoyed her “ooh’s” and “ahh’s.” (She was on the part where Edward comes back, obvs)

XO,
me

A Unicorn Sighting v2.0

Dear Unicorn-Man-Reading-Eclipse in Terminal 4, Sky Harbor Airport-

What chapter where you on when I first spotted you? And who is that woman hanging over your shoulder reading? She looked like either your mom or a weird girlfriend you met on Eharmony.com who’s making you read the Twilight Series to prove your love. Is it wrong I wanted to join you and ask questions?? Maybe we should start an airport book club?

So either airports are Unicorns* favorite hiding places or this is the same dude that Christapie saw last week on her flight! Only this time I saw a man reading ECLIPSE! And as irony/luck would have it I was on the phone with UnintendedChoice! We were discussing having just seen Twilight for the 4th and 5th time when I turned to my right and saw my first Twilight related Unicorn. I started whispering to UnintendedChoice, “OMG there’s a Unicorn here reading Eclipse!!! I have to take a picture!! I wonder what chapter he’s on?”

So dear Unicorns wherever we may find you… don’t fear us or our camera phones… we’re really just interested in what you think of this vampire love story and if you’re as obssessed as we are.

Love and questions,
Me (themoonisdown)

PS Sorry for the crappy quality of this cameraphone pic… i turned the flash off and had to zoom in

*A Unicorn is a term we use to refer to mythical creatures… meaning people we’ve only heard exist but have never seen in real life, i.e.: a man reading Twilight/A male Twilight fan*
